If you look at my Twitter feed for half a second, you’ll see things like this.
Why do you hate the skin you’re in?
You’re a whore dealing with self-hatred.
Let’s trade Stacey Dash for Rachel Dolezal.
I don’t hate Twitter — I love it. And I love hearing from all of you… well, most of you… because it’s important to talk about these issues of race.
But I want to set this straight.
I’m not ashamed that I’m black.
I’m half Black and half Mexican.
I don’t hate my skin.
What I hate is the stereotypes that so-called “black entertainment” has created. I hate they say that I am not “black enough” once I open my mouth. I hate that liberals make the rules — white liberals are the most racist people I’ve ever met. They demand that black people act a certain way, vote a certain way, and think a certain way.
“You aren’t black enough,” I’ve been told by producers.
Why would a white man say that me, a black woman? Because they have a stereotypical view of black people that they want to portray to the world. I don’t fit the mold.
Blacks go along with it without even realizing they’re short changing themselves.
